Five Things You Didn't Know About Robert Plant

Happy 65th birthday Robert Plant!

My big claim to fame regarding this former Led Zeppelin singer is that when Jonathan and I interviewed him several years ago, he asked me for my phone number. I'm still kicking myself for not giving it to him!  (I could just see it now, "I think I'll ring up that delightful American radio DJ and ask her over for tea").

Here are some other Robert Plant facts  you may have missed:

1. Robert Plant loves J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, and many early Zeppelin songs were inspired by Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit. (Misty Mountain Hope, The Battle of Evermore, Over the Hills and Far Away, etc.)

2. His current band is called the Sensational Shape Shifters.

3. Before he became a rock star, he worked at a Woolworths dime store in England. Or I suppose they would call it a shilling store?

4. You'll never believe what he likes to do to relax before he goes on stage. He irons, and says he always has an ironing board backstage.

5. Robert Plant is a little bit naughty. (Watch the clip below.)
